Arsenal fans have begged for the return of Jack Wilshere after his contract was terminated at West Ham.

The midfielder signed for the Hammers in 2018 but managed just 19 appearances.

His deal was set to expire next summer but the club have reached an agreement with him to tear it up.

But the 28-year-old insisted that he was still fit and firing and ready to go.

Despite making a measly 16 Premier League outings in two seasons, Wilshere said he still has plenty to give.

"Despite all my best efforts and intentions, it has not worked out as I expected," he said.

"I have been fully fit for a large period of time at the club, including over the course of the last eight months - training hard every day - but unfortunately have not been given the opportunity to play.

"Although of course I am frustrated that I was not fully able to showcase what I am capable of at West Ham I remain convinced I can still contribute at the very top of the game.

"I'm now looking forward to the future and hope to be able to make an announcement about the next stage of my career in due course."

Wilshere left Arsenal two years ago to join West Ham, who he supported as a youngster.

But fans would like a sensational return at the Emirates for the Englishman, who was once touted as a world-class talent.

One fan said: "Is Wilshere available? Bring him home @Arsenal."
